KiwiRail has rail corridors through and adjacent to plantation forests. There is specific legislation, The Railways Act 2005, that includes provisions dealing with rail crossings and undertaking work in or near the corridor. A work may be the planting or harvesting of trees or undertaking earthworks or drainage works.
KiwiRail has supplied FOA with documents that provide guidance on obtaining permits to enter (PTE) the rail corridor and or rights to private level crossings. Note that a PTE may be required if operating within five metres of a rail corridor.
